Art, Learning & Play
Over the years, I have evolved and grown into my job as a mother, as my family has evolved and grown in size. With each child, my world changed, not only in mathematical terms but also in dynamics, imagination and creativity!
In addition to making sure each child gets some undivided mommy attention, playing dolls, reading books, cars, blocks, cooking and sewing etc...I allow them to explore their world and focus on creating kids crafts and art projects that cater to their current interests.
So this website grew from a place to store all our holiday kids crafts to one that shows off our home school learning crafts on the topics of the kid's choice.
The children in turn have become creative designers and are working on their own craft ideas, personal interest websites and business blogs. Yes, they are only in elementary school. However, in this house we focus on each child choosing a business to explore and create.

Christmas Advent Calendar.
This advent calendar is not only is it beautifully festive and functional, it would make such a wonderful gift. It also has the flexibility to be put almost anywhere in the house instead of just on the refrigerator.
Material needed for Cookie Sheet Advent Calendar
1 cookie sheet not Teflon coated. (The Dollar Store is a great place to find one)
Acrylic Paint and brush
A couple coordinating patterned papers
At least 25 magnets
Lots of numbers...such as rub ons or stickers
Trinkets o plenty: buttons, stars, mini cookie cutters, metal shapes, mini watch tin holders, ribbon, etc.
Glitter (but of course)
Clear sealer (such as Krylon)
Ribbon or chain for hanging
Instructions for your Advent Calendar
1. Drill 2 holes in top left and right of cookie sheet. Holes need to be large enough to string ribbon through.
2. Tear or cut papers and arrange as desired to cover back side of cookie sheet. My calendar shows paper and top and bottom. Glue stick back of paper-cover completely) and adhere to sheet.
3. Paint sides and rim of cookie sheet and parts of the paper.
4. When paint dry, use a Sharpie marker to create a grid with 7 slots across and 4 rows. Measure the width of your calendar and divide that # by 7 to know how wide each rectangle will need to be. Do the same for the length of the grid. Note that the grid does not completely cover the sheet, the tops and bottoms are left blank for embellishing.
5. Add Title. Another option is to cut a swag banner shape, paint it and add December rub ons to the banner when paint is dry. If you add magnets to this banner, you can remove it and add other months later if you like! A monthly calendar, a birthday countdown, vacation countdown, or other holidays would be fun!
6. Add a smallish embellishment to lower right hand corner of calendar. If you give this piece a magnetic backing, you can change these out like the month banner to keep the cookie sheet reusable.
7. Add any other words to accent the calendar. Keep in mind that for the beginning of the countdown, the calendar will be less full of numbers, and so adding a word here and there will help fill in the grid until more numbers are added to it when the month progresses.
8. Seal the entire cookie sheet with a Krylon Spray Clear Sealer or something similar.
9. Now the fun and detail begins! Create those numbers. Use all the same numbers, or go a step beyond for more fun...and make them different and unique as shown above. Be sure the numbers you add aren't too heavy and that there is room to add magnets to the back. I found magnets in different strengths at the local craft store. Magnets with an adhesive backing work great and are easy to cut.
10. String ribbon through those top holes to hang.
11. Store the numbers behind the cookie sheet and bring out a new one each day.
